I started this blog two years ago. It has been an interesting two years. I have had days where I posted four or five times a day. Other stretches where I have gone up to a week without posting. This is my 530th posting to this blog.
Lately I have been on a dry spell. Not from a lack of desire to write, or from a lack of things to write about. It is mostly because I just can't seem to put together more than a few coherent thoughts in a row. I just seem to have so much stuff rolling around in my head that I can't get any of it out straight.
I would like to say that I am going to make a concerted effort to write more regularly, especially since the democrats in Congress seem bent on giving me so much to write about. But I'm not sure I would be able to keep that promise. So I am going to try harder, but no promises. Especially since I found out that I may be coaching both a division 1 and division 2 teams in the city league this year. Oh boy. This could keep me very busy for the next couple months.
In the last two years I have had 16,227 visitors to my blog. This really surprises me. Too many bloggers out there are all about the hits. I really don't care. I don't accept advertising and I don't go out of my way to advertise my blog. If people stumble upon it then fine. If most folks never see it then that is fine also. I'm not writing for the world as a whole. I'm writing for myself and for the few members of my family who stop by occasionally to see what I am up to. I have one exception to that rule. I'm currently working on an article about teaching beginning skills to young volleyball players. Apparently the most common search string topics that lead people to my blog are questions about beginners volleyball. So I'm going to see if I can come up with something to accommodate those folks a bit. Hopefully I'll have it finished in the next couple days.
In the meantime, happy blog birthday to me.
